Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The hoodless Ninja Suit is nice for a couple reasons...

You don't need to have the hood bunch up in the back of your neck while riding (though it doesn't even bunch that badly due to the lightweight fabric)
The knee-length legs do not allow for extra fabric inside your boot. Also good if you wear a knee brace!
Mock turtle necks are friggin cool.

I own both a Merino Ninja Suit and a regular synthetic Ninja Suit from Airblaster. The wool is definitely the way to go, though the synthetic is also good.

In my experience, the wool stretches a little more, breathes a little more and does not stink after multiple uses. I still wear the synthetic on colder days, but can also just put an extra layer with the wool and control my personal microclimate pretty effectively.

I snowboard in the pacific northwest. I'll wear the merino suit with just a shell from about 25F to 40F and be perfectly comfortable. Under 25F, I'll add a flannel, use an insulated jacket, or just use the synthetic Ninja Suit without an additional layer.

As with all Ninja Suits, the beauty is that snow can never get down your back and all of your base layer is organized into one piece. This means that your base layer top will not ride up and bunch with your other layers, keeping you comfortable and moving freely beneath your outer layer.

Put it this way, trying to go out without a Ninja Suit is like getting off a trampoline and trying to jump normally.

I've used a Ninja Suit for 3 years now. I will never use another piece of long underwear as long as I live. Function and comfort are unmatched. I love that one piece allows you to layer without having the "bunched up tangled layers" feeling that accompanies wearing multiple garments. Also, snow NEVER touches your skin, unless you're getting face shots of course, which is just great. The security of knowing I won't have snow down my butt lets me freely tomahawk down powder landings with complete disregard for chairlift comfort. Anyone going out in the wild without a Ninja Suit is really limiting themselves.

The only bad thing is that it is very hard to motivate yourself to get off the couch and change out of your Ninja Suit after riding, so it might inhibit your weekend nightlife motivation.
